Abstract. The paper contributes to the problem solving in semantic browsing and analysis of scientific articles. With reference to presented visual interface, four -- the most popular methods of mapping including own approach - MDS with spherical topology, have been compared. For a comparison quantitative measures were applied which allowed to select the most appropriate mapping way with an accurate reflection of the dynamics of data. For the quantitative analysis the authors used machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms and described: clusterization degree, fractal dimension and lacunarity. Local density differences, clusterization, homogeneity, and gappiness were measured to show the most acceptable layout for an analysis, perception and exploration processes. Visual interface for analysis how computer science evolved through the two last decades is presented on website. Results of both quantitative and qualitative analysis have revealed good convergence.
